I doubled the recipe and served it for breakfast for the two of us. I used fresh pineapple, and frozen blueberries. I also used plain low-fat yogurt, and added two servings of vanilla hemp protein powder. As the pineapple was fresh, I didn't have juice, so I added some orange juice instead. It was delicious (and perfectly sweet), and will definitely become a staple in our house!
My son suggested I "make him a pineapple smoothie for him" (nice, huh?) since we had pineapple in the fridge. I had the Food.com web site open on my phone's browser so I just typed it in. He saw this one and said "That one sounds good!" Threw it together with some blueberry yogurt in the nutribullet and he was a happy kid! The only down side is the pineapple fibers and blueberry skins get caught on the blades. But my boy went to school with a nutritious drink so I'm good. Next time I'll add a little protein powder.
Great drink, although I used unsweetened yogurt with maple. 5 Stars!
I followed this recipe just as it was written, with the exception of the yoghurt. I used plain low fat yoghurt. It tasted delicious! Perfect for when you are craving something sweet, & a better alternative to ice cream. Great, refreshing drink! Will be making this for my family as well.
I doubled the recipe because I was making it for the whole family to go with dinner last night. I had to use flavored yogurt and didn't have enough pineapple juice from the can. So I don't think it weathered my substitutions well, but I would love to try it just as written. My toddlers loved it.
I needed to use up pineapples and blueberries from the freezer and this was perfect for breakfast. I used my Hawaiian pineapples from our backyard that I had frozen, so it was wonderful. Thanks for posting this and reminding me how good a smoothie can be!
Used fresh blueberries and canned crushed pineapple. You get just a hint of the vanilla from the yogurt. Very tasty breakfast treat for us. It was a little too thick for me so I added a splash of milk and some ice cubes. It really is a beautiful color!
I used fresh pineapple and fresh blueberries and skipped the pineapple juice. I mixed it up with my hand mixer which meant the blueberries didn't get blended as well as they probably would have in a standard mixer. I think it affected the color, but I doubt it did the taste. It was a nice combination of flavors. A tad bit tart for me, but that's probably because I miss read the recipe and used plain instead of vanilla yogurt. Oops! It was still good though. Thanks for sharing, Bev! :)
I have had this recipe saved for a while, and while looking for a way to use some frozen blueberries, I remembered it. I halved the recipe, and used frozen blueberries. My store only had custard style vanilla yogurt, but I think that helped to make it a bit thicker. Loved it, and wished I had made the whole batch. Thanks for sharing!!!
I bought 10 pounds of blueberries this morning, so I've been looking for lots of delicious recipes for using them up. This smoothie is incredibly delicious, healthy and super quick! And the color is just gorgeous. One of my boys is crazy for blueberries, so he and I split this between the 2 of us. Thanks Bev!
